About Kennebec Timber Framing
We Are Framers...
In 1998, we started our business as Kennebec Carpentry Services, mainly producing “stick frame” buildings, as well as pouring concrete slabs and doing excavation. As the business grew, we began incorporating heavy timbers and joinery into our structures. The result was a high level of satisfaction, as we knew that “this is how it should be done.”
We changed the company name to Kennebec Timber Framing in 2004, and in doing so, committed ourselves to the design, crafting, and raising of the highest quality timber frames. We specialize in the design and cutting of all our mortise and tenon joints, scarfs, dovetails, compound joinery, and more; using proven methods from buildings that have been standing for hundreds of years.
Let us design your frame using our cutting edge software, programmed for timber framing. We can digitally model your project, letting you see it before it is raised! We can also provide you with foundation drawings, to ensure your building has a solid base.
Here at Kennebec Timber Framing, our team is highly skilled in all types of building and construction methods — we know what it takes to get the job done right. Whether you’re interested in a small outbuilding or looking for a massive barn, we have the experience needed to design the perfect building to fit your needs. Are you looking for more than just a frame? Heavy timber stairs, custom doors, live-edge railings, and special timber details are just a few of the customization methods we have a solid background in. With Kennebec Timber Framing, you can trust that your project is in good hands.
